Hi Tom - You probably know, I'm a big fan of this station too.

ALL of the Sierra Nevada Big Room shows are simulcast here...free streaming!

Ah, Nevada City! Saw great RT solo show compliments of KVMR at the Miners Foundry. Too bad Mad Dogs and Englishmen pub no more... Is Cowboy Pizza still in business?

Are you familiar with Utah Phillips? He's a very close friend's stepfather (one of my former students from my teaching days in Nevada City).

Don't live in NC--not sure about Cowboy Pizza, but I havn't heard of it in some time, so it may not be around any longer.
Utah is great...he used to do a show on KVMR--Loafer's Glory. Played tunes and told stories about Hobo-ing and railroading and Kate Wolf and Woody. Never met him, tho...

Well, I could find no evidence that KVMR is broadcasting ALL of the Big Rooom Shows.

But I don't think it's a rare occurance. So, check the appropriate web-sites and rock on.

Utah Phillips and his hobo music and stories. Yes! Very entertaining.

He's had quite the life. My friend's mom, and Utah's wife, used to run Harmony Books. I taught at what was John Woolman School back in my younger days. I love that area, and among the kids I was with at the time were Kai Snyder (Gary's kid) and Jonathan Richman's step-son. As you are well aware, a lot of characters up there on the ridge and around the towns. Hell, even Ricky Williams moved there to mess up his NFL career!

I knew they were simulcasting some shows--but ALL shows--wow! I love and support KVMR (and have for all of my 17 years in the area), but I must admit, I've been giving them less listening time than in the past. I got a CD player in my truck around Xmas, so I'm not listening much while I commute. I still listen to a lot of the Saturday programming when I'm around. I also checked in a bit during World Fest. The dang ol internet has got my ears at work--what with the Archive, Fat Music, XM (from my boss), Wolfgang's Vault, Pandora...it's incredible what's out there...I need about 3 more sets of ears and another 8 hours in the day...
